Reaching Out The Next Generation
Before Jesus ascended from the heaven, He gave us The Great Commission: Sharing the gospel in every tribe and in every nation. Somehow, there’s a specific group of people that we need to reach out. And who are those? They are the next generation: The kids.
Why the kids? Together with the youth, they are the future of this world, just Dr. Jose Rizal said. Someday, they will be a celebrity, a business tycoon, president of this nation, or maybe become a UN secretary-general. Who knows? Together with our efforts by reaching them out and sharing the gospel, someday they will turn this world upside down.
Being a KIDS Church teacher is a lot fun beside on having a great time with the kids in the church, God is also using me to mold the children to be a world-changers. And by the gospel, as young as they are, they will be equipped to face this world.
As what Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me.” (Mat. 19:14; Mark 10:14; Luke 18:16), let us draw the next generation to Him.
Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
– Proverbs 22:6
